Friday Faves

IMG_2901{fall foliage + fog}

Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? I’m off to Key West…looking forward to eating lots of Key Lime Pie, listening exclusively to Jimmy Buffet and Kenny Chesney, and doing everything the NYT’s “36 Hours” article tells me to do. We’ll have more than 36 hours though (5 days!), so if you have any recommendations I would love to hear them! Wishing everyone a lovely fall weekend. Some fun photos and articles for your Friday:

  • Facial mists – I’ve never really tried them, but this article makes me want to start!
  • I’ve been craving this pasta all week.
  • Loved this week’s Modern Love (Last week’s Modern Love? It’s published online on Thursdays but printed in the Sunday NYT, so depending upon how you read it…)
  • I’m really working on perfecting my roast chicken this fall (have you ever made “Engagement Chicken”? My friend Kristy did one time…..but it didn’t work.)
  • I can’t wait to go visit Eagle the Penguin!

IMG_2938{Such a thoughtful “just because” gift from my dear friend Jessie ~ I’ve been drinking my detox tea out of it all week! In related news, did anyone catch that game last night? Go Dawgs!}

IMG_2932{My two favorite uncooperative photo subjects in the Petit Bateau outfits I got them about a year ago – now that Coop finally fits into his, Harper has almost outgrown hers. Damn those French sizes! And yes, this took two takes, thus the two different bows}

Happy Friday to my loyal B&B readers! Can you believe it’s been so long since my last FF post? 15 weeks, isn’t that terrible? And in the summer, when there are so many favorites each week! Not to mention all the Cooper and Harper pics I’ve failed to post. But now we’re back into the swing of things and I’m hoping to be better about blogging this fall.

What are you up to this weekend? I’m on day five of a 20-day detox, so I’ll be staying in for most of the weekend eating lots of healthy foods and not drinking any wine (woe is me). Thank goodness there’s lots of football to watch! Wishing everyone a lovely weekend. Go Huskies and Go Hawks! And now some fun links and pics. TGIF!

  • This little boy and I are on the same page
  • I’ve been eating this salad on repeat all summer (thus my need for a detox!)
  • Dying to try this soup – and it’s *almost* detox-friendly!
  • Rumor has it this lip pencil in ‘Dragon Girl’ is Taylor Swift’s go to red – I bought it for three friends this week and am thinking I need it for myself too!
  • This book arrived yesterday and I can’t put it down – Mindy and I speak the same language.
